Maintenance Tip: Water Heater
- Before doing any maintenance on your water heater yourself, be sure to shut off the power, and read your owner’s manual.
- At least once every three months, drain water from the tank. Over time sediment builds at the bottom of the heater, which can hamper performance, and draining a gallon or so helps remove the sediment.
- You should also periodically inspect your water heater burner. The flame under the heater should appear blue with yellow tips. If it’s mostly yellow, or if it’s sooty under there, your flue may be clogged, which is a dangerous situation. Contact a professional to check it out.
- At least once every two years, have your water heater inspected by a service technician. He or she will also check the drain valve for signs of leakage, and the anode rods for corrosion
Tankless Water Heaters in The North Shore
Installation of tankless water heaters involves taking out the traditional water heater tank in your home and replacing it with an electric or gas heating unit that heats the water directly. A tankless water heater is also known as an ‘on demand water heater.’ It is named this because when a tap is turned on, only the water needed travels through the heating unit for immediate use. So, if you are not using hot water, there is no energy wasted on heating it. On average, a tankless water heater installation can save up to 35% off of heating costs if installed correctly. If you have never seen a tankless water heater, it may sound a little unbelievable, but a correctly sized heating unit will deliver an endless supply of hot water as it is needed. Our technicians at Waldman Plumbing and Heating, Inc. are specifically trained in water heater service, both tank and tankless. We can help you figure out whether you need a single point application water heater (for a bathroom sink), or a multipoint application (whole house tankless) water heater.
While tankless heater are beneficial in certain areas, they also have some potential drawbacks as well. In a tankless, heat is generated in a bottom up fashion. Cold water passes through a series of coils that reduce water pressure in order to heat water quickly. However, the coils may clog up over time with scale build-up that reduces efficiency, and could eventually cause the heat exchanger to fail.Now there is a new system that does all it promises and more. It’s called Hybrid Water Heating. A Hybrid Water Heater pushes cold water from the bottom up through a series of radiating transfer pipes. It’s maximizes energy efficiently by pushing the heat in separate directions, and reuses the energy created multiple times. The end result is an endless hot water supply throughout your home, with no reduction in water pressure.

40/50 Gallon Water heater
When shopping for a new water heater, size matters. Take into consideration the size of your family and the water usage of your household. A general rule of thumb is, a 40 gallon water heater will typically meet the needs of a family of four, while 5 family members or more may require a 50+ gallon water heater. Also be sure to investigate the water heater’s FHR rating, (first hour rating.) This rating describes how much hot water a given tank can produce in a single hour when it’s fully heated. If you aren’t sure where to begin when deciding what size water heater is right for your home and family, reach out to Lynn, MA and the North Shore’s water heater experts, Waldman Plumbing.
What Size Water Heater Do I Need
Lynn, MA and The North Shore Area trusts Waldman Plumbing and Heating when it comes to plumbing and heating questions. Have you recently thought, “what size water heater do I need”? Water heaters typically have 40, 50, or 60 gallon storage tanks. What size water heater do you need to accommodate your home? The answer will vary depending on how many members live in your household. A family of 3 to 4 people could be well-suited with a 40 gallon water tank to provide you with enough warm water to shower, do laundry, and wash dishes while a larger family might require a 50-60 gallon tank, However, sizes are rough estimates and the proper water heater size will be reliant on variables such as the number of people in your family and the average duration of showers and baths.
If energy efficiency and being eco-friendly is a priority, having a larger tank may be beneficial. Having a larger tank of water can reduce the overall amount of energy used to heat the water by reducing the amount of times a full tank would need to be reheated. This means a 50 or 60 gallon tank could possibly reduce your home’s carbon footprint, but comparing tank size alone isn’t enough to know which is more efficient.
